Safari for Windows gets its first security update

— 12:40 PM on June 14, 2007

Apple's first foray into the Windows browser world failed to impress security researchers after they found multiple security holes in the Windows version of Safari within hours of its release. It's taken Apple a couple of days, but as CNet reports, the iPod maker has now released a new version of Safari for Windows that addresses three major security holes. Two of those holes could allow arbitrary code to be executed, and one might have allowed cross-site scripting. Despite initial worries upon the bugs' discoveries, the MacOS X version of Safari isn't affected.

Users of Safari for Windows can download the new 3.0.1 version of the browser from Apple's download page here. This is still beta software, though, so we suggest those who download it exercise caution.
